quote even knowing it. scott has the story. >> let's call him "steve." he agreed to talk with "teen kids news" about the supplements he uses to beef up. >> i started taking supplements when i was a senior in high school -- 12th grade. >> he's not unusual. it's estimated that more than 12 million middle- and high-school students are buying what are called "supplements." over several years of bodybuilding, steve has developed a regular regimen of several powders that he feels gives his body a boost. >> after i add the protein, i would add about a tablespoon of l-glutamine...which is supposed to increase muscle endurance. >> you can buy these things in stores, but that doesn't mean they're safe. >> sadly, that's not the case. why? because these drugs are -- these supplements are unregulated. well, what do i mean by that? there's no agency like the food and drug administration that's checking to see that what's on the label of the container is actually what's in the container. >> experts say that puts people like steve at the mercy of manufacturers...who cheat.
